Text description provided by the architects. With a huge concern of increasing effects of global warming, our goal was to design an environmentally friendly house by using a low-tech method to control the room temperature without much use of air conditioning.

It helps reduce the use of electricity in the house and the amount of CO2 discharge that is a major cause of global warming effects. We avoided any openings facing on the south elevation, which is 1 story. That led us to accomplish this environmental and people friendly solution. We hope this project will give people an opportunity to think about what they can do for our planet.
